Manny’s Moans – Change is Irresistible
I love change. Change is what makes life interesting. Change causes us to grow. Even if the change is unwelcome, dealing with it makes us stronger and teaches us things we would otherwise not know. In business, they say that, “Either you are growing or you are dying.” I never believed that. I always believed that, “Either you are changing or you are dying.” Hopefully the change is for the better and good leaders will make the best of it.
I read recently that people don’t resist change. They resist being changed. This rang very true to me.
People change all the time. They change phone service providers and TV channels and restaurants and houses and cars, etc. They make the choice to change things in their lives quite often and if they don’t like that change, they change again.
People resist being changed. The resistance is to other people, or outside forces, pushing them to change. When this happens, people tend to become immovable objects and may even push back. They don’t really object to the change, they object to the process.
It is a great leader indeed who effects changes with the consent of the people. They frame the changes to each individual’s need, wants and desires. Essentially causing the individuals to want to change. This is the key to good leadership: To influence others to want to comply.
So, embrace change. It is the spice of life and the cat’s pajamas. I have no idea what the cat’s pajamas mean, and my cat refuses to wear them, but it sounds like something good.
